Brenda’s Got A Baby

The following video shows Tupac Shakur performing his song Brenda’s Got A Baby, which tells the story of a 12-year-old girl from the ghetto who has a baby that she cannot support. The song addresses teen pregnancy and the lack of support for impoverished teens from their families, the government, and society. Watch it:

I wish Tupac still lived today. He has many other songs that address poverty and other serious social and political issues.

Tupac holds the record as the highest-selling rap artist. Drive-by shooters shot Tupac 4 times on September 7, 1996, and as a result he died 6 days later at the age of 25.

The song appears on Tupac’s album, 2Pacalypse Now, which you can buy from Amazon.

You can discuss teen pregnancy and Tupac’s music about poverty at the Hunger and Poverty Forums. It’s completely free, and all viewpoints are welcome.
